Important Pro-family Victories in MA!

by MFI News

Wonderful news!  Late last week, we learned that the Assisted Suicide bills in the MA legislature have both FAILED.  Technically, they were “sent to study,” which effectively kills them for the remainder of the 2017-2018 legislative session.  Suicide advocates will now have to refile legislation in January of 2019 and begin the whole process anew.  […]

Christian Group No Longer Welcome at Harvard

by MFI News

This story hit the news late last week, and Matt McDonald over at the New Boston Post has a good piece on it: “A Christian fellowship was put on probation last week for forcing a junior who served as an assistant Bible course officer to resign because she embraced homosexuality, according to The Harvard Crimson.

You’re Making a Difference!

by MFI News

Representative James O’Day, sponsor of the notorious Sex Ed Mandate, admitted that the “bill’s prospects in the House this session are uncertain.”  Why is that?  Because of you. “Every time that there seems to be a move forward on this bill, there comes a rash of emails mostly with inaccurate information,” O’Day lamented. “They fill […]

Two weeks ago, we asked you to help stop the Secret Abortion Bill in the MA Senate.  Unfortunately, the Senate passed it, but, as our friends at the Renew MA Coalition noted, your efforts did make a difference: “Spurred on by your emails and phone calls, a group of nine moderate and conservative state senators […]
